Fluorescence turn-on reactions of bicyclononynes

We show in our new work published in the special “Early Career Series” issue of ChemPlusChem that bicyclononynes (BCN) in reaction with tetrazines containing electron-donating substituents form fluorescent dyes. This fluorogenic reaction enables bioimaging with excellent signal to noise ratio.
